This will become a top-level page, like the Comment Policy page:
The following applies to this blog as a whole:
Advertising: I make no money from this blog. Whatever advertising appears was put there by WordPress.
Images: I am not a professional photographer or anything like that. Nearly all images come from Google Images. Pictures are removed upon request: email me at abagond at gmail dot com.
Sources: I am not a scholar or anything like that. Most of what I know anyone can know, which is why I rarely list sources.
Balance: This blog is not “balanced”. It is written in relation to US and British media. I feel little need to repeat what they have paid professionals saying all the time, in particular all the wonderful things they say about White people and all the terrible things they say about Black people.
Scope: The scope of a post is set by the title and first paragraph. I limit my posts to 500 words, so depth and background come from yet other posts, some yet unwritten, some listed at the bottom of the post under “See also”, some found by adding “abagond” to a Google search.
Opinion: This is a personal blog. It is full of personal opinions. But
they are just that: personal. I speak only for myself. Anyone is free to
disagree with me (within the bounds of the comment policy).
Audience: I do not write this blog for White people. I write this for myself first, Black people second, people of colour third, and White people fourth. I live in the US, as do most commenters and lurkers, so this blog will tend to be US-centric. But anyone of any race or any nation who knows enough English is free to read and comment (within the bounds of the comment policy, of course).
Not anti-White: This blog is not against White people. It is against
My racism: I am racist, but hopefully a recovering racist.
Your racism: If I call you a racist, it is meant as a bit of friendly advice, not as fighting words.
Not all Whites: When I say “White people” I do not mean ALL White people. That is not, like, a rule of English. But if what I say upsets you, you are likely one of those White people I am talking about. “White people”, by the way, mainly means the English-speaking sort, especially those in the north-eastern US, the kind I know best.
White people are not uniquely evil. I do talk about their evil more, but that is because of the part of history I live in.
Talking about racism is not itself racism. Know the difference.
Names of people not in the public eye have been changed to protect the innocent.
No animals were harmed in the making of this blog, except maybe some bugs. And the chickens, turkeys, fish, shrimp, cows, sheep, goats, pigs, and possibly horses, that were killed for my non-vegetarian diet.
